Hello everyone! I started experimenting with menstrual cups about 10 months ago and I would like to know your opinions and advice regarding meluna cups and TPE. So far I've used to cups, the yuuki small and the small Mialuna (Chilean brand) and like them both. I want to buy a higher capacity cup and I'm considering the meluna large for its capacity. As I only tried silicon cups I wanted to know if there's a big difference in how the material feels and acts, like is it harder to pop open? Does it crash with strong PF muscles? Does it smell weird?

Thanks so much in advance for your advice :)

It doesn't smell. I find that compared to silicone with equal firmness, it's less springy, i.e. it doesn't have the same eagerness to pop back into its original shape, which does make it harder to pop open. It also reacts more noticeable to temperature: it gets softer when warmed up to body temperature, which I actually like for getting the cup out.

Meluna offers different firmnesses, so you can choose a very firm cup if you have strong PF muscles. The classic firmness is already on the firmer-than-average side, though. My Meluna XL seems to be just as firm as the large Lunette.

The Meluna L is pretty comparable to a lot of other brands' large size, by the way, so capacity alone doesn't leave you with Meluna as the only option.

Thanks so much for all the info :) I was considering it because I can't get a lot of brands of cups where I live, and Meluna L was on my best options. I think I will get that one, cause it's a more well bell shaped one And I have a dangling cervix, my other option is a cup called lifecup which is silicone and is pretty similar in shape and size to the diva cup, only a little less firm, but I think I'll go with meluna cause life cup is V shaped and may be pokey for my low cervix
